Audio Research Ref 6 SE

Hi , was told today that Audio Research Ref 6 SE is about to get released with first shipment scheduled by the end of December/ early January, if anyone has more information about specs please share , I emailed AR support waiting for response with details but they confirmed about Ref 6 SE release . I was about to purchase one so would be interested to see what got upgraded or how much will current Ref 6 will drop in price ..,
Not being an apologist but how far in advance do you expect them to preannounce?

It sounds like product not released yet, but announcement has been made already.
So it’s a question of how far in advance, where company knows following announcement difficult to sell current model. 
Whatever the magic day is, there will always be people who bought the day earlier, right?  So move announcement up a week to placate those people. But wait, then there’s still more who bought the day before that ..... 

someone will always get screwed
I am done with Audio Research. I have seen a HUGE decline in customer service and how it treats people. Fortunately, there are still some great ones, like Pass, Vandersteen and a few others, but how disappointing to see this transformation.
kren0006: The Reference 6 I purchased hadn't even been manufactured. I had to wait several weeks. The 6E came just a few weeks later. It would have cost ARC nothing and would have rewarded a loyal customer who has spent close to $100,000 on ARC gear over the last 27 years.

@kren0006 Let’s hope that you are not the poor sap who bought the day before...LOL.
Selling the current model is not difficult at all once a new model has been stipulated, one simply has to discount the old model enough and disclose the new model to all potential buyers...very simple....unless that is you want to try and justify an unethical act.
Got it. Yeah I can see why you’re unhappy. I wonder if they will work something out with you
